This lovely item is a Fenton glass bell which has been handpainted and personalized by Louise Piper. Louise is credited with restarting the Fenton Art Glass Company decorating department in the 1960's, and her handpainted items are very collectible.
This bell has to bluebirds, roses and ribbon along with the words, '50th Ethel . Christ 1983'. The interior is signed, 'Handpainted Louise Piper 6. 7. 83 From Dick & Emma'. It was probably made to commemorate an anniversary. The bell is in excellent condition and is waiting to be added to someone's special Fenton collection.
